Song of the Day/”Cover Me” Sundays: Big Joe Turner/Bill Haley & The Comets – “Shake, Rattle & Roll”
Today as we continue through the Atlantic Catalog, I thought that I would post this classic that was initially a big hit for Big Joe Turner and then later a colossal smash for Bill Haley. Great music for any get together going on today and remember to put that “big piece” of chicken to the side for that special guy.
